Eric Burdon: Survivor 1977

Eric Victor Burdon (born 11 May 1941) is an English singer-songwriter and actor. He was previously

the vocalist of rock band The Animals and funk band War. He is regarded as one of the British Invasion's most distinctive singers with his deep, powerful blues-rock voice. He is also known for his aggressive stage performances.

In 2008, he was ranked 57th in Rolling Stone's list The 100 Greatest Singers of All Time.
Survivor is a solo album released in 1977. It was recorded at the Advision Studios in London, England. Burdon reunited with Zoot Money to write songs for this album. Also his old friend Alexis Korner helped recording.

George Bruno "Zoot" Money (born 17 July 1942 in Bournemouth, Hampshire - now Dorset) is an English vocalist, keyboardist and bandleader. He is best known for his playing of the Hammond organ and association with his Big Roll Band. Inspired by Jerry Lee Lewis and Ray Charles, he was drawn to

rock and roll music and became a leading light in the vibrant music scene of Bournemouth and Soho during the 1960s. He took his stage name 'Zoot' from Zoot Sims after seeing him in concert. During 1968, Money moved to U.S.A. to join the lineup of Eric Burdon & the New Animals in time for their Every One Of Us album, and the group soon incorporated stretched-out, heavily-psychedelicised versions of Dantalian's Chariot favourites 'Madman Running Through The Fields' and 'Gemini' into their setlist.

Money has been associated with The Animals, Eric Burdon, Steve Marriott, Kevin Coyne, Kevin Ayers, Humble Pie, Alexis Korner, Snowy White, Mick Taylor, Spencer Davis, Vivian Stanshall, Geno Washington, Brian Friel, the Hard Travelers, Widowmaker, Georgie Fame and Alan Price. He is also known as a bit part and character actor.
